A young pioneer scout dreams of being stranded on an island of tiny little people, just like in Jonathan Swift's famous novel.

This was the world's first puppet-animated feature film. The version above is the original one from 1935. The soundtrack was replaced and the film was re-edited in 1961 - that version seems to be shorter (about 1h4m), has entirely different voices and music, more dialogue, a fairly large number of different edits has and the "Mosfilm" logo in the opening credits. Animation historian Georgiy Borodin has a good article here (in Russian) on the differences between the 1935 and 1961 versions.
